Top Halloween Video Ads of 2024


Halloween isn’t just a time for costumes and candy; it’s also a golden opportunity for brands to engage their audience with creative and spooky video ads. In this blog post brought to you by Lapse Productions, we’ll delve into the top Halloween video ads of 2024 that have set a new benchmark in marketing. While we won’t be listing them all here, we’ll explore the elements that make these ads stand out and why they’re a masterclass in effective video marketing.

Why Halloween Ads Matter

The Emotional Connection

Halloween ads often evoke strong emotions—be it fear, nostalgia, or humor. This emotional connection can be a powerful tool for brands to deepen their relationship with consumers.

Seasonal Relevance

Halloween-themed ads are timely and relevant, making them more likely to be shared and talked about. This seasonal relevance can give your campaign that extra ‘oomph’ to stand out in a crowded marketplace.

Key Elements of a Successful Halloween Video Ad


A compelling narrative is at the heart of any successful video ad. For Halloween, this could mean a short horror story, a funny skit, or even an emotional tale that tugs at the heartstrings. Learn more about the importance of storytelling in our guide to corporate video production.

Visual Effects

High-quality visual effects can elevate your ad from good to great. Whether it’s realistic CGI monsters or intricate set designs, the visual elements should complement the story and not distract from it.

Sound Design

Sound plays a crucial role in setting the mood. From eerie background music to spine-chilling sound effects, the audio should enhance the viewer’s experience, making the ad memorable.

Call-to-Action (CTA)

Even the spookiest ad should have a clear CTA. Whether it’s to visit a website, shop a sale, or share the ad, make sure your CTA is concise and compelling.

The Importance of Early Planning

As we’ve emphasized in our guide on early planning for holiday campaigns, timing is crucial. Starting your Halloween video campaign early can provide ample time for creativity, A/B testing, and strategic pacing. This ensures your brand stays at the forefront of consumer consciousness throughout the spooky season.

Unless the victim gave explicit permission before their passing.
